Chandler, who is a native of the Nashville area, has worked in the health and fitness industry for over 22 years including 18 years as the Fitness Director of Belle Meade Country Club. He is certified through the American College of Sports Medicine, the American Council on Exercise, and the National Strength and Conditioning Association and holds an MS in Exercise and Nutrition Science from Lipscomb University.  Chandler's research focus is evidence-based methods for bringing about healthy changes in populations and exercise as a way to reduce risk for chronic disease.

Unlike their competitors, Foundation Wellness leads with a personal, "boots on the ground" approach, visiting their clients on a regular basis providing services tailored to the needs of the particular organization. Chandler adds, "I started Foundation Wellness, because I could see the need for a more hands-on approach in the industry, one that relies less on remote monitoring and more focused on personalized coaching. I know from my extensive experience that building personal relationships leads to much greater success for our clients."

Bone McAllester Norton PLLC partnered with Foundation Wellness in February to help the firm start an employee wellness program. The law firm launched their program with regular on-site yoga classes and experienced immediate success with 25 employees signing-up.

"The practice of yoga is well-demonstrated to reduce the effects of stress on our bodies.  As part of our commitment to our staff and ourselves, Mac (Sam J. McAllester, III) and I decided that working with Foundation Wellness would be a great way for us to find balance and create a healthy office culture," said Bone McAllester Norton Founding Member and Chairman Charles W. Bone.
